Important Meetings in Early March

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

The Maryland Public Service Commission (PSC) will be conducting a hearing on Tuesday, March 2nd at 10am at the William Donald Shaefer Tower, 6 Saint Paul St. in Baltimore, MD.  In short, the purpose of the hearing is to have PJM (the regional entity whose members provide electricity in the mid-Atlantic area and beyond) to update the commission on potential gaps in capacity/reliability that might exist in Maryland between now and 2016.

Why this matters to us:

If PJM is not able to show credible evidence/analysis that there will be gaps in reliability in Maryland between now and 2016, then it is possible (maybe likely) that the PSC will not accept the application that Potomac Edison (i.e. PATH), submitted in December 2009.  It’s possible the PSC would direct PATH to submit another application only when they can show sufficient need.If you aren’t able to make the trip to Baltimore on March 2nd, don’t forget that we are having a community meeting on March 4th at the Providence United Methodist Church on Kemptown Road at 7:00PM.  We’ll share what happened at the hearing there.
